For analyzing any company like Health Net from an investment perspective, its important to check the cash flow statement. While its important to look at the Health Net debt position, the cash flow statement becomes equally important because public companies use accrual accounting. For example, if a company sells a product which gets counted as Health Net revenue but does not convert to cash because it does not receive payment in the same quarter, it affects the cash position for that period. Items like capital purchases, bank loan payments etc. which have a direct impact on the cash position of a company come out through the statemement of cash flows and help an investor who undertakes the Health Net stock analysis. Health Net generated $431.09M cash from operating activities in 2015. Health Net saw a outflow of $-546.64M from investing activities for 2015.
